    Taking tomorrow night off for some Trypticon action and a few games of snooker in Liverpool.

    I would rather sack off the evening and fully indulge in embracing the robosaurus, but them's the breaks. Eh? EH??

    Hopefully Big Breaks, eh? Eh? ;)

    Actually all the Jetfire talk ended up with me getting him down off the shelf for a quick spin into (frankly exquisite) jet mode & back, and that Intake collapse still scares me. Do make sure you've swizzled his hips around into the totally correct alignment, @Imperator, there's a good chap.

    IMG_0326.JPG Does anyone here collect Pokemon cards? I got this with a recent eBay order of a G1 Vortex. I have NO use for it whatsoever so if this is your sort of thing send me a pm and it's yours. Otherwise it's going in the bin. :)

    Doubt a charmeleon is worth anything(even postage) bud, they were very common if memory serves.

    The price point may just be enough to stop me buying another version of that mould, i.e it’s a good thing.

    Thanks man! I know nothing about this sort of thing but thought I'd stick the offer out there. Bin it is then? Or recycling it should be really I suppose...?

    Ok, so be honest - is Perfect effect Jinrai worth the cost? And does he feel like he will break when transforming? Just debating PC-15 and 16, and I know I shouldn't after my recent 3rd party issues with FP Explorer!

    Ah, I reckon there won't be another run.

    I did a run of 25 that first year, followed by a small run of 8 and to be honest it was the subsequent run that put me in the red, (I lost money on that first calendar). Looking at my 2017 spreadsheet I did a single run of 60 for that calendar, but it was broken down into groups of 20, because I thought I'd only get 20 or so orders!

    Hmm. Looking at it that 2016 Calendar did make me money... (ooooooh, £7.15 BIG money) and I did sell my last one to DisCode along with the 2017 Calendar so actually that one was pure profit... a whole year on. BWAHAHAHA. Oh dear.

    Anyway, I really hate to say it but by their very fannish nature if you want one of these calendars you have to put your order in early so's I can include it in the print run. :( 

    But I'm glad they're arriving safely and I'm glad it's being well recieved. You've got a month and a half to crack that code! And honestly it's not that difficult, if you know what I'm like.

    I like order in my universe and thus the code is completely logical to me.

    TFW you find out via a random FB Group post that you missed a Shuffler restock at ID Toys.
